Psychotherapy & Counselling at York Clinic

Counselling and psychotherapy are commonly referred to as “talking therapies”. York Clinic have experienced practitioners in this field: Simon Baverstock, Tracey Patrick  and Richard Cooling.

Counselling and psychotherapy are commonly referred to as ‘talking cures.’ Both provide an opportunity for people to work with emotional problems in a safe and confidential setting, where they will be heard respectfully and without being judged.

There are some differing opinions among practitioners concerning the causes of emotional distress, but broadly speaking all psychotherapists and counsellors seek to help people identify the reasons for their current difficulties and to consider what they might like to change. As practitioners at the York Clinic, we differ in our approaches (see our individual entries for more details), but share a common aim of helping people to gain a sense of control over, and responsibility for, their lives. We will always aim to create a respectful, caring relationship in which you feel able to talk freely about your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. Our emphasis on responsibility also means that we don’t regard counselling and psychotherapy as akin to medicine, or as something that’s ‘done to’ people, but as a collaborative venture in which both parties are active participants.
